Projects QUBES Secure Operating System

Hi, I would like to share a project based on Linux for building Laptop or Desktop more secure; QubesOS. Project Qubes aims at building a secure operating system for desktop and laptop computers. The stress is on security, which is achieved by exploiting the isolation capabilities of the bare-metal hypervisor (Xen), together with modern hardware technologies, such as Intel VT-d and Trusted Execution Technology. Problems with current operating Systems: Current mainstream operating systems that are used for desktop computing, e.g. Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux-based systems, proved unsatisfactory when it comes to security.

E.g. if the userʼs Web browser gets compromised (due to a bug exploited by a malicious web site), the OS is usually unable to protect other userʼs applications and data from also being compromised. Similarly, if certain system core comp
